Venus flytrap dying
My kids recently received flytraps from their teacher. We tried feeding them and triggering the traps but they just stay open. Some of the traps have turned black so I trimmed them off. Now they are yellowing. I have been giving them plenty of sun light without the cover on them and them covering them with the top at night. I watered them with distilled water. Today I was reading about them and realized that they are potted wrong.
The kids did a project where they did sand art in a wide mouth mason jar and then the teacher planted the plants on top of that. The plants looks as though they were removed from the original pot and were still in their peat moss. Upon closer inspection today (a week after receiving the plants) I realized there was a small layer of potting soil between the sand and peat moss.
I removed the plant and peat moss and cleaned all the soil out of the jar and off of the peat moss on the underside of the plants.
Is there anything I can do to save these plants?
